BOGOTA, Colombia, June 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VSUS Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:VSUT) today announced it has entered into a letter of intent to acquire all of the outstanding shares of a privately owned 4000 HA (9880 acres) coal concession in San Vicente de Chucuri, Colombia, in the Department of Santander, Municipality of Lebrija. Once executed, VSUS Technologies will file a definitive agreement with the SEC reporting the acquisition of Concession Contract No. FLG-101 granted for the Exploration and Exploitation of a Carbon Mineral and other Grantable Mineral Deposits by the Colombian Institute of Geology and Mining. The Concession Contract will become wholly owned by VSUS Technologies Inc.

"This acquisition will add to our portfolio of concessions almost 10,000 acres in the Middle Magdalena Valley where neighboring coal seams are being exploited," stated Mr. John Campo, President of VSUS Technologies Inc. "Phase I field exploration is complete, we are gearing up for Phase II in order to complete our Environmental Impact Assessment and Work Program as well as prove our reserves to begin mining operations. The location of the concession is ideal for large scale mining due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean by land or river," further commented Mr. Campo.

Transportation, Logistics and Other Information

VSUS Technologies is consulting to build or acquire wholly owned river loading facilities on the Magdalena River close to our mines. The coal will be trucked to these river ports, and then barged via the Magdalena River to the Ports of Barranquilla, Santa Marta, or Cartagena for export. The Company plans to build or acquire a river barge transportation company and an export coal terminal in Barranquilla, Colombia. Initially we will use existing facilities while our transportation projects are being developed. The Colombian and Chinese Governments are jointly improving railroads that will facilitate local coal producers' ability to export. After the rail projects and the "Road to the Sun" project are completed, VSUS Technologies will have one of the only coal mines in the World with river, rail, and road access to coal export terminals on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
